  The macros take functions which return scalars. You are trying to give
it a function which returns colors, so it won't work.
  What you need to do is to make a temporary function which will convert
the color returned by MyTest() to a scalar. For example:

#declare MyTestHeight = function { MyTest(x,y,z).hf }

  Then you can give 'MyTestHeight' as parameter to the macro.

#macro M(A,N,D,L)plane{-z,-9pigment{mandel L*9translate N color_map{[0rgb x]
[1rgb 9]}scale<D,D*3D>*1e3}rotate y*A*8}#end M(-3<1.206434.28623>70,7)M(
-1<.7438.1795>1,20)M(1<.77595.13699>30,20)M(3<.75923.07145>80,99)// - Warp -
